Strawberry Fields Forever

Good morning peeps and what a beautiful morning it is here on the Costa del Sol. The sun is shining brightly and temperatures are begining to rise, the birds are chirping sweetly but I wish someone would tell them I don´t like to be woken at 5am.
It is Wednesady again, oh where do the weeks go, and that means it is Flutter By Day and for Challenge#55 we have the option to use the colours Red, White and Blue in honour of Danni´s husband Sam, being deployed to Iraq.
Nancy is our featured Team Member this week so do stop by her Blog and leave her some love, she is a lovely lady and awesome crafter.



Righty ho onto my card, I have had this "Flower Fairies" stamp for ages, bought it in one of the cheapy buckets at Hobby Craft for a couple of pounds and this is the first time I have used it for myself. I coloured "The Strawberry Fairy" with Prisma´s and H20´s, used my new MS punch and new reel of Smirk ribbon which allows me to enter Challenge 26 with One Stop Craft Challenge whose theme is "Something New". Flowers are a mixture of Prima´s and punched so I can also enter Stamp Something whose theme is Showers or Flowers and there are some pretty little strawberry flowers too.

I have my friend Angie visiting today, yes she is the one who got me into carding, so must rush and have a quick flick round. -x-
